Abaqus FAQs


Check the SIMULIA Knowledge Base.  If you can’t find an answer there, then you can:

Since Abaqus 2017, we do not recommend the locally installed HTML manual due to severe restrictions in its search capability.  Visit 3DS Help and choose a version that ends with the word “SIMULIA”, or just click here for the 2019 version.

There are still PDF versions of the manual available for download as Knowledge Base articles.  Start with this pre-entered Knowledge Base search.

Yes, please see our training page or contact us to let us know what you’d like to learn.  The SIMULIA Learning Community also has many useful articles and examples.

This really depends on what you’re trying to run.  Our absolute minimum would be 4 CPU cores (WITHOUT hyperthreading), 8 GB of RAM, a 1 TB hard drive, and an Nvidia GeForce for pre-/post- (NOT compute).

These are by no means recommended specs – do not make a hardware purchase without consulting us to discuss your individual needs, as they will dramatically affect your ideal hardware configuration.

Visit our CST hardware requirements page for detailed answers.

You will find step-by-step instructions on our blog.  You can also contact us.
